    Now that's a Head Ball Coach! I told my dad that he's basically the run version of Steve Spurrier

    I wanted him when Meyer quit. I was called stupid.

    You hire a real coaching staff, this is what happens.

    Auburn jumped to #1 in the computers with that win. They'll be solidly #1 if they beat Missouri.

    Bama has better talent, their players have had more time in their current system, a more experienced QB, etc but Auburn pulled it out. How? Does Bama have a ton of injuries or something?

    Malzahn is an offensive genius. He literally wrote the book on spread offenses. He put together a nice defensive staff and let them coach.

    I have lately developed an admiration for great coaching, regardless of the team, that I never had before.

    Good for Auburn, they don't have to cheat anymore.

    He turned the Auburn program around within a year and look where they are now. Muschamp took three years nowhere but downhill. Foley, take a hard look at them!

    No.

    Malzahn's system negates talent.

    No other explanation.

    When I saw he got Ellis Johnson I knew he was smart putting together his staff. I like the "run version of SOS" comment. I'm still trying to figure out how they ran up the middle vs Bama.

    Too late. We couldn't get him now. We are a step down now.

    It's just a great scheme. It's not a gimmick b/c it is still predicated on having a great oline.

    Great win for Auburn. A bama weak spot got exposed in their kicking game. I'm sure they are partying in Columbus right now

    Posters on here argued with me when I put Malzhan in the upper tier of SEC coaches.
    In fact, some folks on here claimed Boom was easily a better coach than Malzahn.
    Wonder if anyone wants to admit to that now?

    Can anyone else here believe that FSU will play OSU for all the marbles now?
